Product Information

The TOP Model Slash has been re-designed for better flying characteristics with new classic balsa, built-up wing, D-box construction, rib/main spar wing design. Also included are the fibreglass gel-coated fuselage and balsa built-up tail parts. The synergy of low weight and strong structure is very unusual in a production sailplane and can only be achieved with careful attention to

Product Information

 

The Gracia Maxi is an ARF light thermal electric glider for competition flying F5J with a wingspan of 3.52 m. Featuring a carbon-reinforced epoxy fibreglass fuselage and 3 piece wing of balsa and carbon construction, this is an amazing electric soaring machine. Very suitable for F5J competition or sport thermal flying. The model features ailerons, flaps and rudder/elevator via the V tail and requires 6 micro servos (sold separately) Power is provided from the brushless motor (sold separately).

The wing spars and leading edge are from carbon fibre giving the wing enough strength and stiffness. The 3 piece wing is covered with transparent red & orange Ultracote. Many expert pilots will be particularly surprised by its excellent flight qualities, given the thin wing airfoil and low weight. Thanks to the long fuselage, the model has a calm and steady glide path. There are several possibilities for how to mix the functions of the flaps (high-performance thermal soaring, spot landing etc.). With the recommended gear train, the performance is fantastic as well as the climbing (power) and soaring (lightness) and the flying time is counted in hours rather than in minutes!

The model is designed and manufactured in the Czech Republic.

Product Information

 

The Albatros 3.0 is one of the most beautiful combinations of classic design and modern technology. The nostalgic shape is perfectly blended with modern building techniques to create an electric sailplane that performs as well as it looks. The white gel-coated fiberglass fuselage combined with high-tech CF main spare/leading edge tube wing and carbon/balsa built-up tail parts come together to make the Albatros 3.0 a strong and light model. Do not be fooled by its retro looks, this model was designed and built to be a 21st-century favorite. With its flap-equipped, 3-piece wing and full flying elevator, the Albatros is one of the most impressive models that we have seen in quite some time. Each part is carefully handcrafted with meticulous attention to every detail. As soon as you open the box, you will find the Top Model build quality that we have come to expect. Hand crafted in the Czech Republic.

Product Information

The Flip is designed for recreational and acrobatic flying, whether on a slope or on a flat surface. It is possible to fly both in the glider version and in the electrified version. The glider can be started by normal towing, or by towing (after adding the release hook). The motorisation is designed for a 3S LiPo battery with a capacity of 2000 - 4000mAh. Flip is an agile glider that willingly responds to rudder deflections. Thanks to the large side surface of the fuselage, it can also handle such turns as twisting and knife edge flight. Even during thermal flying, it performs surprisingly well.

The TOP Model Flip is delivered as a glider. The kit includes parts for its electrification, including a tool for cutting off the front of the fuselage. The wing structure is polystyrene-balsa, complete with spar and fiberglass reinforcement. The fuselage is fiberglass, white-coloured, complete with a fiberglass canopy hatch. The easily removable floating elevator is an all-balsa construction with a carbon spar and a leading edge. The rudder also has a balsa construction. Covered with Ultracote in a red and white scheme
